What are we reading/watching; what should we be reading watching?
In preparation for the trip I've read
Are we not there yet? Travels in Nepal, North India, and Bhutan by Chuck Rosenthal
and The Velvet Shyness of their Eyes
and have downloaded my friend L's friends book Thin Places: A Pilgrimage Home
And the kids and I have watched, kicking and screaming in protest:
City of Joy
Children of Heaven (or this )
and Gandhi this week-end
and maybe Raiders of the Lost Ark?
Any other suggestions? Watchable movies that show Nepal scenery, third-world issues, history, and et cetera? Great books that can help the kids and I start to approach this all?
